    1.2 the famous Malinga yorker makes an early entry, Warner's feet go nowhere, his bails fly a distance after the ball crashes into the stumps, Malinga provides a big early breakthrough, as he does so often, is there anyone with a better yorker in world cricket today? 11/1
    4.4 Delhi in dire straits now, a direct hit from Sachin Tendulkar removes Virender Sehwag, Mumbai are ecstatic, Finch played the legstump delivery towards short fine leg and sets off for a single, hesitates midway but Sehwag still wanted the run, Tendulkar fired it in and hit the stumps, Sehwag so far out that the third umpire wasn't needed 27/3
    1.4 Malingaaaaa, Chand's debut hasn't gone well,fast length ball, Chand has no clue to Malinga's bowling, stumps in disarray, as is Delhi's innings, Chand was looking to smash that towards midwicket, that balll hits the middle of middle, what a start from Malinga 11/2
    6.6 and that's the end of Finch, this is turning into a mismatch, a tossed up delivery from Harbhajan, Finch goes for the sweep, top-edges it and Tendulkar is shouting 'catch it, catch it' as Rayudu seems to have misjudged it slightly early on, he moves across to his left from deep backward square leg quickly though to latch on to the ball, Delhi four down now 40/4
    14.2 that's the end of the partnership, Murtaza breaks through, Ojha skips beyond leg and launches the ball towards long-off where Malinga accepts the catch 82/5
    15.2 Malinga is unstoppable, a swinging low full toss, Venugopal looks to drive that one, but the movement means he can only gets an inside-edge on it, and ball carries on to the base of middle stump 88/7
    14.3 is he gone for a golden duck? Pathan guides the ball towards short cover and sets off for a single, there was no run in it and he has to turn back, fielder fires in the throw to the keeper, who breaks the stumps, a gazillion replays required to take the decision, I think he is out, and after much deliberation, the giant screen says 'Out', not a great comeback for Irfan 82/6

    15.4 oh dear, Morkel's got a new bat but that isn't enough to keep another Maling toe-crusher out, another yorker, another bowled, the richest man in India is quite happy with that, Mukesh Ambani jumps out of his seat to applaud Malinga's fourth 88/8
    16.3 turns that one a long way, Umesh Yadav can't cover for the spin, it slides past the pads as he looks to nudge the ball to the leg side, Jacobs collects and have an eternity to remove the bails, Delhi nine down, will they be the first team to be bowled out this season? 90/9
    17.4 no they can't, Malinga gets a five-for, 5-13, third-best figures in IPL history, it's not bowled this time, it's short of a length, slower one, Dinda is much too early into the shot and the gently lobs to mid-off, and Delhi have folded for 95 95/10

    1.2 Morkel strikes, Jacobs is gone, back of a length ball that nipped sharply back, Jacobs' feet go nowhere as he looks to chop that through the off side, it sneaks past his bat and on to off stump, his debut innings isn't one to remember, and Delhi send the message that they aren't going to just roll over though they have only 95 on board 1/1

    6.1 outstanding work from van der Merwe, that breaks the partnership, Rayudu leans across to drive a ball angling across him to extra cover, van der Merwe moves across from mid-off, he's on all fours as he fields, still manages to turn around and effects a direct hit that catches Rayudu short, that was amazing fielding 31/2
